Can Workability be Enhanced by Operational Wave Modelling?
IADC’s Young Author Award winner François De Keuleneer and co-authors Joris de Vroom and Arjan Mol discuss the Workability Tool which ensures captains of specialised vessels can make informed decisions to dredge during favourable wave conditions.
Tsunamis are large ocean waves, usually caused by an undersea earthquake, a volcanic eruption, or coastal landslide, which can cause extreme damage.
Earthquakes can cause liquefaction of soil because during an earthquake the soil loses its strength or stiffness, and can result in failure and landslides.
Extreme weather events like earthquakes, tsunamis, heavy winds and hurricanes should be considered when planning a dredging operation.
